An exceedingly rare original print of this legendary caricature of young Winston Churchill, as published in Vanity Fair magazine in March 1911, drawn by the noted illustrator Frederick Drummond Niblett (1861-1928), whose nome de plume was “Nibs.”

From 1868 to 1914, Vanity Fair published over 2,300 lithographic caricatures of the dominant figures in British society; politicians, royalty, peers, bishops and socialites, as well as lions of the arts, science and sport. This virtually mint example (14 1/2 x 9 inches) of one the most memorable of all Vanity Fair caricatures has been matted and framed in gilt-edged black lacquer (17 x 22 1/2 inches overall). There is a small chip to the upper left corner of the frame, else fine.
